Yacht

For most of us the word Yacht conjures up romantic visions of racing ships with elegantly tall masts, sails fully rigged flying through the water crewed by expert seafarers.

Whilst this impression still holds true there is a new generation of cruise, expedition and private yachts that offer so much more to those with a passion for discovery seeking a different experience at sea.

For many aficionados of sail spending time aboard a yacht is not cruising! It’s an entirely unique adventure but most definitely without bunk beds and meagre rations for hardy sailors! Hoist sails in the Maldives, Caribbean, Thailand, and the Mediterranean or embark on a voyage of Indonesian discovery aboard elegant sailing vessels accommodating 20 up to 250 passengers.

The range of yachts covers five masted fully rigged Star Clippers offering a sophisticated, grand way to travel to all the service and accommodation you’d expect to find on a motorised vessels reaching destinations no big ship can. If you want to watch the light glint off the water and the wind flick the sails as you discover the world of low-key entertainment and no dress code then yacht cruises are for you.

These custom-designed vessels reach remote islands inaccessible to larger ships and offer a small guide-to-passenger ratio. Many of them are custom-built with elegant teak furnishings throughout giving many of these beautiful yachts a traditional and elegant ambience. A top tip from regular yacht travellers take plenty of sunscreen, sun hats and sunglasses are a must, the sun's rays can be strong, due to the reflection from the sea.
